THE PITFALLS OF MICROLENDING- THE TALE OF THE FORECLOSURE OF A GOAT - 02/24/11 12:52 PM
Many of you may have heard about micro-lending but because it is generally a tool used by persons in countries like Pakistan, India and Bolivia really never gave it much thought. Neither had I until I recently read an article on Source of Title http://www.sourceoftitle.com This short article reveals the potential pitfalls of micro-lending in a way that while was not meant to be humorous, for some reason just really made me laugh. I do not feel good about my reaction, but that was my honest reaction. But, then, I started to really think about this issue and read a bit (0 comments)
I have been a smoker for my entire adult life, spanning more than 25 years now. I have smoked upwards to 1 1/2 packs of cigarettes a day for at least the last 20 years. That is a serious lot of smoking and no small amount of money wasted over the years. At $65 a carton, smoking a carton a week I spent about $260/month on something that was killing me, affecting those around me and generally making my life a living hell. I have repeatedly tried to quit smoking by making New Year's Resolutions, promises to my self and others (4 comments)
Social Media ~ Are you playing fairly? - 02/08/11 01:48 PM
Every day we all do the same thing. We tweet, re-tweet, blog, like, comment, LinkIN and Branch out. But, are you doing these things selfishly or are you playing fairly? It's exciting to see your numbers increase isn't it? You check every day to see how many people are following you, who has subscribed to your blog, who has recommended you on LinkedIn, how many have invited you to Branch Out, commented on a Face book post, and who has tweeted or re-tweeted you and so on. BUT...... What have you done for your followers? I just started using Twitter (@PREFERREDTITLE) more diligently this month. In (2 comments)
RAINMAKERS LOVING THE RAIN - 02/07/11 12:29 PM
Saturday February 5, 2011. A dreary nasty day here in Maryland. But I turned it into a RAINMAKING opportunity!! Because of the kindness of a good friend, Bridget McGee, the Mortgage Mama http://activerain.com/bmcgee I had an opportunity to participate in a gathering of RAINMAKERS from Maryland and Pennsylvania. We met at the Suburban House in Pikesville, MD. I was immediately welcomed into the group by Margaret Rome http://activerain.com/blogs/homerome an Ambassador in the Rain, our hostess, and just a wonderful warm and friendly individual. Margaret made a point of personally welcoming me to the group and introducing me to all who attended. She also (4 comments)
I love the Jetsons!! I recall fondly many afternoons spent watching this futuristic cartoon and wishing and hoping for some of the technology that the Jetsons enjoyed. What wonderous things they had. A robot to clean the house, a machine to dress them, a machine to feed them a car that FLEW!! and then folded up into a brief case. Man those were some great ideas. As I look around my office and home I realize that many of the futuristic ideas presented on the Jetsons have actually become standard items that you can find most anywhere. We all have (0 comments)
Is it time to replace your blankie? - 02/02/11 04:15 PM
My five year old grandaughter reminds me very much of Linus. She has a blankie, now this blankie is not a little tiny thing that she can easily carry from place to place, NO, it's a queen size blanket that has become over the last 5 years more than a little tattered. She particularly loves the "taggie" on the blankie, which taggie is almost gone now. Blankie goes wherever she goes, except to school. Blankie stays in the car because she can't take it to school. She would if she could probably, but... I was talking to her about blankie the (2 comments)
